WESTPORT - Two protesters accused of causing a major scare at a temple in Westport earlier this month appeared in court today.

Daniel Fisher and Gregory Williams both went before a judge on charges of criminal trespass and breach of peace.

Police say they entered Temple Israel last week while the temple was hosting a luncheon and talk with members of the Israeli Defense Force.

Police say they were not wanted there and staff tried to get them to leave but they refused and had to be physically restrained.

Supporters of the men showed up to court today and say this was a peaceful demonstration and that the men's rights were violated.
